Manchester City confirm agreement with Corinthians for Carlos Tevez

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed that an agreement has been reached with Corinthians for the sale of Carlos Tevez.

City turned down a £40 million bid from the Brazilian club last week, and were believed to be holding out for £50 million for a player who finished as joint top scorer in the Premier League last season with 20 goals.

However, speaking on the club's pre-season tour of the USA/Canada, Mancini told the media at the press conference in Vancouver: "We have an agreement with Corinthians but Carlos now is still a City player."

Asked whether Tevez would now be discussing personal terms, Mancini replied: "I don't know this. I repeat, at the moment, Carlos is still a City player.

"I want to wait. At the moment we are here, we are working with the other guys. We should think about this.''
